Georgio and I were talking about the new fall anime season. Obviously the highlight hopefully will be Tytania (which has it's own thread).
Here's a couple of first episodes I tried on today at lunch so she what they were all about. Pretty good start so far.
Casshern Sins - Really cool looking show stylistically, premise seems to be that 70s robot hero Casshern is responsible for the state of ruin the world is in, but how this came about is still to be revealed. Lots of "what's going on?" but in a good way. So far...buys.
Kuroshitsuji - A show set in Victorian era England about an butler, who likely has some demon in him (or is a demon flat out). Wasn't sure for the first few minutes but really liked it by the end of the episode. Sort of a cross between Requiem for the Darkness and Ouran High School Host Club if you can figure that out. So far...buys again.
Not too bad. Tytania airs tonight, hopefully subbed soon!
Dear God, I just watched the funniest show since Cromartie.
Detroit Metal City (DMC) which I totally forgot just came out because it's an OAV and not a TV show. You guys will blow your lid when you see this.
Premise in a nutshell is this quiet, meek guy who wants to make swedish pop music ends up in this insane death metal band with super funny lyrics. Insanely over the top. I didn't do a count, but I'm sure they used the word "rape" as a comedic device at least on par with the number of times they said Casshern's name in Casshern Sins first episode.
I now want to watch these with you guys so, so bad. 8, 13 minutes episodes so far (Cromarite style).
Crap, they were playing the live action up there?! Man, I wanna see it so bad but it won't be fansubbed until it hits DVD.
I just got my Johannes Krauser II figure in today from Hong Kong. It's every bit as awesome as the above picture would indicate. It came with a bizarre note in poorly written English stating they'd send me a free anime figure if I gave them a 5 star rating on Ebay (?!).
Off to ebay I guess. I would have given them 5 stars for getting it here this fast anyways.
